their own when they are put to the test. >> listen, the last that happened was john to youer, a senator from texas and the one before that was 1959. the senate pretty much protects their members. the tower nominations are similar to this one. guess who is going to introduce chuck hagel tomorrow? guess who the chairman and ranking member of the armed services committee were during the tower nomination? the same two men. the biggest thing about the tower nomination was that that was taken down by conserfatives. a guy named paul was a pretty big conservative. you know who he is and he testified after tower testified before the committee. he wasn't a good person and the fbi allegations were all true. alcoholism and coziness with defense contractors, et cetera, etc. to be honest, it was the conservatives that brought down john tower. i don't see that happening at this point, but you never know. >> i think a lot of the opposition to chuck hagel is for opposition sake. there is character assassination is homophobia and anti-semitism. i don't care if he is homophobic as vile as that is to me, i want
>> that should be based off equal opportunity to compete. john: it should be barred government goes well beyond that. will happen when the referee blew the whistle or called the penalty? >> i am not sure that is a foul. [laughter] >> they would form committees. john: hearings, litigation, games go on for years. with instant replay that almost happened the nitpickers said every play must be reviewed to make sure it is fair. why not? that was a disaster it would stop the momentum, during this sunday's super bowl coaches can challenge but there is a limit, no more than six per team and the referees can look at the replay screen for no more than 60 seconds a limit on the search. that works. clear and simple rules than the rest get out of the way to stay out of the game. if government worked that way we would be much better off. that's our show. see you next week. jobs council back in 2011, billing the advisory board of prominent business leaders and economists from around the nation who were to offer prposals to help spur job creation and economic growth. the president only met with his
for the next couple of days. i'm here with john pod hotter and bill kristol, founder and editor of "the weekly standard," and we're going to get right into it. john podhoretz -- >> podhoretz -- >> john podhoretz, you wrote a book a few years back called "bush country" in which you celebrated the achievements of our 43rd president, and george w. bush was a guy who thought deeply about imuation reform, poverty and trying to craft a middle class agenda for the gop. george w. bush is a figure that many republicans have been running away from. so tell me, do you think republicans were too quick to abandon george w. bush? >> i'm sorry, what? i was tweeting. i'm sorry. [laughter] um, well, yes and no. i think, obviously, politically republicans distanced themselves from george w. bush because it was politic thing to do. numbers don't lie. he became very unpopular. parties tend not to embrace figures and politicians who become unpopular. my view is that a lot of the distress over bush's domestic agenda from which republicans fled beginning really in 2005 had, it was a, it was an ancillary result of th

to senate republicans particularly john mccain sent with their treatment of hague snell. >> i think actually it was a long memory from people who had to work with chuck hagel over the years, alex. i think a lot of people who didn't say then senator hagel and sometimes his treatment of witnesses at the stand, people that had to go before him and be questioned by chuck hagel were not surprised by this kind of grilling. also, remember chuck hagel spent a lot of time telling people they were wrong or they were immoral in some of the decisions that they made. and this was some payback for him for that type of stance towards others in both colleagues and people who had to testify before his committees. >> yeah. and i mean, there are those who -- john mccain, shall we say, he's probably going to be upset that chuck hagel was there supporting president obama when they were running against one another. you get that. but this is a pretty serious job, tony. this is defense secretary. i mean, do you think that kind of politics, those maybe personal issues should be brought up under these circumstances?
